Just three days after the last blast, another suicide bombing. But despite the twisted metal, and rushing emergency crews, this is not the mayhem of last Thursday's attack in Jerusalem.
This time, the bomber walked into this outdoor cafi, in a northern suburb of Haifa. He blew himself up on the patio - had he walked indoors, Israeli police say, it could have been much worse. Most of the victims of this blastwere only lightly injured.
Militant group Islamic Jihad announced that their activist, twenty-eight-year-old Muhammad Nasri carried out the attack.

(chyron: Thursday/Jerusalem)

The Jerusalem explosion was claimed by Hamas. Both have promised more to come.
Israel has blamed Palestinian chief Yasser Arafat, for failing to arrest militants in his territory.

But the Palestinians are in no mood to do Israel's bidding - protestors scuffled again with Israeli police, who took over the Palestinian political center, Orient House after the last bombing. They also took over other Palestinian Authority offices near Jerusalem, including a major telecommunications office.

((Melanoma, the skin cancer that killed Ronald Reagans daughter Maureen Reagan, is expected to strike more than 50 thousand Americans this year. This type of cancer is particularly dangerous because it can spread quickly into the body from the skin. But it is highly curable if caught in the early stages. Severe sunburns in childhood may also increase the risk of developing he disease later in life, so children in particular should be protected. Doctors have long advised people to examine their skin to find melanomas and other skin cancers early. A mole that changes in appearance or size or a new mole is worth checking out.
As we get older the way our bodies respond to food changes along with our nutritional needs. Our digestion becomes less efficient and we lose some sense of taste and smell which makes food less appealing; In particular, the number of calories we need declines as the amount of energy we need from food decreases. However, no matter how carefully we eat, vitamin supplements may still be needed to cover vital gaps, particularly with people who are suffering from heart disease or diabetes. By taking into account the bodys changing needs , we can leverage the body's ability to weather the changes of aging and help prevent additional health problems. The maker of OxyContin, a prescription painkiller linked to a growing number of overdoses and deaths, has announced that they have come up blueprints for a "smart pill" that would be tougher to abuse. The new painkiller destroy its own narcotic ingredients if crushed into a powder and snorted or injected -- the typical manner in which OxyContin currently is abused. OxyContin is a slow-release narcotic painkiller that is widely prescribed for people suffering from chronic pain resulting from such problems as arthritis and cancer. It has been blamed for contributing to more than 100 deaths nationwide. If the Food and Drug Administration approves the new pill, it would be one of only a few abuse resistant drugs on the market.
